If you’re planning to travel more in 2018, January’s suggested attractions and activities are guaranteed to improve your chances of sticking to those New Year’s resolutions.

Whether you’ve decided to spend more time on the beach or plan to learn a new skill, we’ve got an option to suit your resolution.

We aim to please with a list that includes everything from scuba diving operators to family-friendly activity centers. Plus a bar/theater, candle shop, and an art gallery that doubles as a sculpture garden.

Start your new year by planning a trip using our suggestions. Use them to jog your imagination, then make a personalized itinerary part of your first great adventure in 2018!



Terra Studios

Terra Studios is more than a great exhibit space for local artists.

In addition to a classic gallery, you’ll also find a sculpture garden there. As well as fountains, murals, and a cafe.

Art appreciation is about more than just looking at someone else’s work. So what can you do there? Everything from taking classes to playing checkers or chess on a giant game board.

Swazi Candles

Since 1982, the folks at Swazi Candles have been turning the process of making wax candles into a true art form.

Yes, they make great candles. But they also create and sell vegetable glycerin soaps and body balms–gift ideas, anyone?

You can stock up on a few of your favorites here. Plus, grab a tasty milkshake at the onsite restaurant!


Medellin City Services

Airport transfers are just the tip of the iceberg for Medellin City Services.

With this operator, you can enjoy personalized tours with English-speaking guides. Plus exciting activities like horseback rides, ATV trips, rafting, and ziplining.

If you’re looking for something extra special, think about a helicopter tour. It’s probably the best way to see the area from above. Paragliding being our second favorite option!

Kilkenny Activity Centre

Bubble soccer, splatball, body bowling. Sounds weird? It shouldn’t. Those are just a few of the activities you can try at Kilkenny Activity Centre.

Familis with kids love this place. It’s great for birthday parties and adrenaline-filled days in the fresh air.

Think about the assault course package if rolling inside a giant transparent ball just isn’t your cup of tea.


Amelia Island Horseback Riding

With Amelia Island Horseback Riding, you can tick that “riding into the sunset” box off your bucket list.

You can treat this as just another touristy thing to do in Florida. Or, you can make a special event even more special.

Hint: this is a great one for birthdays, anniversaries, and wedding proposals!

Alexander Bar, Cafe & Theatre

Great wine, classic martinis, outstanding whiskies, and some jazz. Alexander Bar serves it all up with loads of that old-world charm you need on vacation.

Upstairs, you’ll find an intimate theater hosting acoustic sessions, readings, and cabaret performances.

Drop in even if you’re not into bars. Sandwiches, salads, cheese and charcuterie boards are served until midnight here!
